In order to add FamilySearch sources to your Legacy database, the "Integrate with FamilySearch" option needs to be checked. To do this, simply click on the "Options" tab, then click on "Customize." Scroll down to FamilySearch and check "Integrate with FamilySearch" and click Save.
By the way, you will need to have a FamilySearch account to integrate your Legacy database with FamilySearch. It's free to sign up and you don't need to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) to have a FamilySearch account.
Now that your database is integrated with FamilySearch, I'll show you how to add FamilySearch sources. You can do this two different ways. One way is to click on the arrows next to your ancestor's name.
Or you can click on the "FamilySearch" tab at the top.
Clicking the arrows or the tab will cause a new window to appear which looks like this.
Click on the "Sources" tab. As you can see from this screenshot, there are lots of FamilySearch sources that I can add to my Legacy database for my great-grandfather Christopher Iverson.
I copied all of the FamilySearch sources over to my Legacy Database for Christopher Iverson.
Here's the family view for Christopher Iverson in my Legacy Database. To see the FamilySearch sources I just added, I just clicked on the sources icon.
And here are some of the sources I had just added.
I hope this little tutorial has been helpful for you. I think this new feature in Legacy Family Tree is pretty awesome!
Thanks for reading!
